Former Argentine President Raul Alfonsin passed away Tuesday after a battle with lung cancer.  His body was laid out before the National Congress so that thousands of Argentines could visit his remains.  Former presidents Nestor Kirchner, Carlos Menem and Fernando de la Rua all paid their respects to the man who returned democracy to Argentina in 1983, in a unique show of unity within contemporary Argentine politics.   Photographs of the ceremony are available on The Argentine Post.
